In CATV system, what is the maximum
envelop distortion?

3%
QUESTION
In CATV system, minimum gain (channel
13) should be at least ____ which is the
same as that of trunk amplifier.

22 dB
QUESTION
Which of the following camera tubes has
minimum lag?

Plumbicon
QUESTION
In CATV system, what is the spurious
frequency rejection?

60 dB or better
QUESTION
In CATV system, what is the noise figure
for UHF channels?

9 dB or better
QUESTION
Where does the dc AGC voltage in a
dual-gate MOSFET IF amplifier applied
to?

Control gate
QUESTION
AC power and CATV signals must be
transported to each amplifier by the
same cable. What must the voltage be?

30 V AC or 60 V AC
QUESTION
In a CATV system, what is the maximum
noise figure without equalizer at 330
MHz?

9.5 dB
QUESTION
In CATV system, cascade ability of the
distribution amplifier must have a
maximum of how many units?

4
QUESTION
Which noise figure represents the
lowest noise?

1.6 dB
QUESTION
For TV system, the horizontal flyback is
10 percent. This time equals ______.

6.4 microseconds
QUESTION
What is the maximum deviation of
cellular radios that use FM?

+/- 12 kHz
QUESTION
What class of analog mobile telephone
has a maximum power of 1.6 W?

Class II
QUESTION
Why are data rates in 3G systems higher
for stationary than for mobile users?

Because the transmission impairments require a


more robust modulation scheme operating a lower
data rate
QUESTION
Why is it more difficult to measure the
power of a CDMA signal than a
narrowband signal?

Because CDMA signals are typically at or below the ambient


noise level and need a special receiver programmed with the
correct PN sequence to be received.
QUESTION
How does stacking omnidirectional
antennas or arrays vertically results in
an increase in gain while keeping the
horizontal radiation pattern
omnidirectional?

It reduces the radiation in the vertical plane, thus


increasing the gain in the horizontal plane
QUESTION
Why is low dispersion move important
than low loss in a modern fiber
communications system?

Losses can be made up by the use of optical amplifier but


dispersion can only be corrected by using regenerative
repeaters, which is more complex and expensive.
QUESTION
Why are soft handsoffs not possible
with the GSM and TDMA systems?

GSM and TDMA systems use different frequency channels in


adjacent cells, so it is not possible to communicate through
more than one cell site at a time.
QUESTION
In CATV system, audio frequency
response must be within +/- ____ dB, 50
Hz to 15 kHz.

1
QUESTION
In CATV system, harmonic distortion
(aural) should not be more than _____ at
50 Hz to 15 kHz at +/- 25 kHz deviation.

1 percent
